This was such a great place to stay. One of the only places in Hanmer that didn’t demand a 3 night minimum stay over Labour Weekend. The couple managing the place were so lovely and helpful. Chocolates on your bed, biscuits with your tea & coffee, towels available for the hot pools, and other little touches such as make up remover towelettes. These were just some of the things we were impressed by. The 2 bedroom unit was a great set up for the 3 of us. Laundry facilities are free! Our clothes weren’t quite dry at the 9pm closing time for the laundry so Alan kindly gave me an extra 15 mins. Was really appreciated and we would definitely stay again.

We stayed here over Labour Weekend for 3 nights. We were made to feel very welcome. All staff are friendly and helpful. Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. So nice to have the room cleaned every day. Also a nice touch is the free laundry including laundry powder. Nothing was too much trouble. Close enough to walk to cafes and restaurants but far enough away that it was so peaceful and quiet at night. Would highly recommend Settlers to anyone staying in Hanmer.

Great location, Great helpful hosts, Great value for money spent. Clean and very tidy. Easy spacious parking Everything you could ask for in a top motel, Personal friendly service. Thank you. We will be back Colin & Irene

The motel was easy to find and in a nice quiet area of Hanmer Springs. Handy to pools, restaurants and shops. Staff very helpful and room was very nice, with some extra little touches to help make your staff more welcoming. Comfortable bed. WiFi and towels supplied to go to the pools which was appreciated.

What a lovely little place to stay after our long drive over the alps on the alternative route from Picton. Our hosts were so warm and welcoming. Free use of the laundry (thankyou!) and towels for use at the Hot Springs. Our room was fitted out with all the standard features but then went that bit further. Extra towels, REAL coffee, fresh milk. I could have happily stayed longer than our one night.

Our room was so comfortable and quiet, just what we needed to wind down after a busy time on farm with calving, before we get busy again! This is our regular home away from home and always feel welcome by the friendly staff. The little extras like chocolates on the bed and bath salts for the spa bath as well as towels for the pool are always appreciated

We had a nice spa bath in our room and everything was very clean. Beds are comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. The location is close to bars, restaurants and activities.

I booked one of the 2 bedroom unit for 3 adults and it was perfect. Plenty of room, great facilities and a nice décor. The service was fantastic and I will definitely be staying there again. The motel is just round the corner from the hot pools, shopping and restaurants and cafes.

Travelling north I was happy to be stuck here due to the snow! Kind and friendly staff who made me feel welcome Room was spacious and spotless- definitely recommend to all, only a short stroll to restaurants.

We upgraded from a studio unit to a one-bedroom spa bath unit & certainly weren't disappointed. Sally gave us a warm welcome, recommended some dining options & activities then showed us our spotlessly clean unit. We were impressed with the decor & extra touches: bath robes, candles, bath salts, magazines & quality plunger coffee (decent sized parking spaces too). Our accommodation ensured a wonderful, relaxing weekend, thank you Settlers.
